    I’m with your man, I hate seeing people chewing gum, especially with their mouth open, I have been known to yell at people on the telly doing it. I dislike stepping in it and its a pain on clothing and in hair – yuck!

    I confess I have taken to chewing gum after lunch when I am at work, as I have got addicted to that quick clean teeth feeling it gives. However, if I do have to speak to anyone at this point, I always discard it straight away, as you’re right, it does not really project a very professional image.

      I also like gun-there are just times for it and then there are times that aren’t.

    It’s horrible stuff. Yes, a quick chew after eating is good for your teeth, they say, but to keep chewing over and over, well it is very annoying as well as rude! It surprises me that more workplaces don’t have a rule about it. Jen.

      I lose interest in gun after I chew for a minute cause there is no more taste.

    Oh, it’s not just you and your husband who think it’s unprofessional!

    In my previous job in HR, I had the unpleasant task of interviewing a chap for an apprenticeship, he had sent in no fewer than 6 application forms so he really wanted to work for us, but he sat there and chewed gum through the entire interview. Had no clue how bad it looked.

      That is pathetic. I personally would have probably said something to him about it for the future.

    It is a peeve. But a stick of gum every once in a while is kind of nice.

      Am there with you. (But my gum chewing lasts a minute or two at the most.)

    you know what I think!! What about those annoying people who crack their gum, or whatever the hell it’s called when they make loud snapping noises with it?
